National Lightning Safety Awareness Week (June 23-29)


Summer is here! And that means New Yorkers will likely see an increase in thunder and lightning storms. Take a moment during National Lightning Safety Awareness Week (June 23-29) to learn how to stay safe in a thunderstorm. Check out Ready.gov for more information on thunderstorm safety. Outdoors: • When thunder roars, go indoors. • Do not take shelter in small sheds, bleachers, or under trees. • Avoid open fields or the top of hills. • Stay away from water, wet items, and metal objects.

Indoors: • Stay indoors. Stay inside at least 30 minutes after you hear the last clap of thunder. • Do not touch anything plugged into an electrical outlet. • Avoid contact with plumbing; do not wash your hands; and do not take a shower or bath.
